Prince Harry and Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece are not dating

Despite the desires of royal fans to see Prince Harry find love, the royal remains unattached. In past interviews, when Harry has been asked about his love life, he avoids offering too much detail, saying, "It will happen when it happens." While recent reports linked the 31-year-old to his distant cousin, Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece, the Daily Mail reports that a senior royal source has kiboshed the story.

However, you can see why the pretty 19-year-old "It" girl has been touted as a possible choice. Australian publication New Idea had reported that the duo had been introduced by Harry's cousin Princess Beatrice and the romance had the approval of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

While this is untrue, Olympia, the daughter of Crown Prince Pavlov of Greece and his elegant wife, Marie-Chantal, does move in trendy society circles thanks to the family's connections.

Her family is close to British royals such as Princess Beatrice.

She was born on July 25, 1996, in New York City – the first of five children and the only girl. The couple moved to London when Olympia was seven so that their children could grow up near Pavlov's parents, the deposed Greek king and queen, Constantine and Anne Marie.

The move also had the happy result of bringing her closer to godfather Prince Charles. Constantine is Charles's second cousin and the godfather of Prince William. Other royal relatives include her great aunts, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark and Queen Sofia of Spain.

When her parents wed at Hampton Court Palace in 1995, the guest list was filled with impressively regal names and the bride wore pearl-entrusted Valentino gown.

Along with her mother, an American heiress from the Miller family, Olympia is a regular on the front rows at Fashion Week. She has been snapped chatting with the likes of Diane Von Furstenberg, Oliver Rousteing of Balmain and Karl Lagerfeld.

Olympia is respectful of her family's pedigree but keen to beat her own path. Slender, creative, thoughtful with traces of an American accent, the boho beauty told Tatler, "I'm dyslexic, so I'm more creative and visual than academic."

She spent a summer interning at Dior and has her eye on a career in fashion or photography, which is just the ticket for a modern-day, 21st-century princess.
